Abstract
Experimental evaluation of a flash lamp pumped Er: glass laser over temperature extremes is presented. In this study, first behavior of flash lamp pumped Er: glass laser system has been experimentally investigated over temperature extremes. Next, the generated data during experimentation has been analyzed and system parameters are optimized such that fairly constant laser output is maintained over temperature extremes. This work also enables the development of a compact, simple, low cost, light weight, low repetition rate and high peak power laser source working in eye safe region for defense application.
